For those new to the visual, it attempts to identify several factors that converge to create or shape our future. This emerging future cannot be predicted, but can be rehearsed at some level if we can envision convergence, implications, accelerants, and obstacles. An example of convergence analysis can be found here. The foundational curve is the science and technology curve. This curve portrays the exponential progression of both science and technology and the reciprocal influence that one is having on the other. This progression continues its unabated exponential rise, and leaders can only see so far on the curve. This creates an uncertainty that makes it difficult to understand its implications into the future.
